“Wonderful place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

The crowd was light, so it was easy to walk around. The gardens never disappoint. Very pretty and well tended. This is our second year as members and we plan to go frequently.

“Longwood gardens,”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

This is the most fantastic place for you to visit if you love flowers, trees and outdoors.
We have belonged as members for many years and it is over an hour away but we go as often as we feel the need for fresh smells, beautiful flowers and a good place to get a bit to eat too.. The orchid display is out of this world and who can come away without feeling the love of God and the creation of these most gorgeous plants. Longwood Gardens changes with the seasons so you will never tire of any of it. As a member you get a lot of many shows and services too.

“Spectacular - almost like going "through the looking glass."”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

We went to Longwood Gardens for the "Orchid Extravaganza" and were blown away by the number and beauty. There were over 5,000 orchids among all the other plants that were in the huge conservatory - it covers four acres. Be prepared to walk, through there are many benches for you to sit and take in the beauty. From huge banana trees on down to very small plants, it's all here. We want to return in the Summer or Fall when we can walk the outside grounds also.

“BEAUTIFUL IN WINTER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

I can only imagine this place in the spring and summer. It was truly beautiful. The indoor area was amazing, I've never seen anything like it, it was huge and the flowers were stunning.
